Commanding a cult of followers attracted to his dark lyricism and inventive flows, 22-year-old rapper wifisfuneral occupies a unique position in hip-hop’s class of SoundCloud graduates. Following-up a fan favorite, wifisfuneral shares “wya pt. 2,” his latest video single. The sequel to “wya?,” a highlight from 2017’s The Boy Who Cried Wolf mixtape that eventually inspired a remix featuring Ugly God, “wya pt. 2” shows wifi’s progression as an artist, as he complements his technical rhyming with bursts of emotional melody. In the video, wifi welcomes viewers into his warped world, as he rhymes in front of mesmerizing green screen effects, illustrating the Palm Beach County-native’s lyrics with psychedelic imagery. Premiered by Complex, “wya pt. 2” is the latest release from Ethernet 2, wifi’s upcoming EP, following last week’s “eggs,” a spritely new single.
“The young rapper has a wide range of skills, from agile raps and bass-heavy tracks to dark and moody slow-burners, and his unpredictability is part of his appeal” – Pigeons & Planes
